Q&L #19

Almost the end of another fortnight challenge over on Craft Barn with the words Patience and/or Better . I think I visited everyone for last fortnight’s challenge but couldn’t leave comments for Carol in Kiwi land, Vicky or anyone who uses Facebook or Flickr. Thank you all for the lovely comments left for my entry in the challenge #18, it seems that quite a few of us had less than happy childhoods. Right on to challenge #19!

I thought this quote for Patience was amusing, it came from Arnold H Glasow, an American business man and humourist

Patience

Patience

The quote came from Brainy Quotes site; the background was created with Distress Inks Broken China and Dusty Concord with the images stamped in Archival Jet Black. Stamps used were Papermania Urban stamps – All Aboard Postmark and Oxford Impressions the Bird Nest.

 

Better:

This word brought to mind the Mama Cass song “It’s getting better” and the words I have used are from the chorus.

Better

Better

For the background I brushed on colours from the Colorbox Primary selection and used Archival Jet Black for the image, the stamp is one of Crafty Individuals -CI-193.

Thank you for looking x

Q&L #16

The new words for this fortnight’s Quote and Lyrics challenge at Craft Barn are Family and/or Thing.

My Family quote comes from a man I admire greatly, Desmond Tutu. If I was to become a believer then this is the man who could convert me! I love his sense of humour, the way he looks at life in a down to earth manner and his strong convictions.

Thing:

This one brings back memories of school assemblies as a child in primary school! All things bright and beautiful.  I seem to have unintentionally gone for a slightly religious theme this time around for both the words. A chance to use a fairly new stamp too.
